I like to keep student violins playable and I know that for many people the cost of repair can be prohibitive, especially with many shops charging more than the violin cost to fix them. I hate to see student violins becoming disposable items and try to keep my repair prices at rates that will encourage people to have them fixed instead of turning them into unplayable wall decorations or throwing them away.
